Mixing pop and politics is a time honored tradition. From Phil Ochs to Dylan to Billy Bragg and Rage Against the Machine there have been those and many others who wish to shed a little light on injustice. Sonny & The Sunsets are among the group of new today’s artists who follow in that tradition.
this is what Sonny had to say about this video..from Noisey
“We’ve all been watching acquittal after acquittal of police officers for the killings of black and brown people. Here in SF the Frisco 5 are on hunger strike outside SFPD (Mission station), calling for resignation of the SF police Chief Suhr over the police assasinations of Alex Nieto, Mario Woods, Amilcar Perez-Lopez and Louis Gongora. There’s been a lot of positive resistance to the powers that be in this city, and our old racist system, so this song just came out of taking interest in what’s happening now.”
